First Street, and parking is in the parking lot at the corner of E. Second Street and Stevens Street.  The door to use is at the top of the ramp located at the truck dock in the south east corner (it is not one of the four public entrances). The north stairway entrance is also available for entry. 

**Note:  due to security issues the door will be locked shortly after 6:30 pm, so you must be there by then if you plan to attend a meeting.
